6/7/13 11:54am - Franchise Texas BBQ for the low information masses. This is Pappas BBQ #19.
I scored Pappas a 78 out of
100. This is Regional Texas BBQ.
Smoke: Hickory. No secret here, the big black Olyers are proudly displayed
behind the glass. Wood fired BBQ.
Brisket: Good. A big thick smoke ring on the edges and 1/4in thick in the
middle. Great bark with rub. A little tough of tender but moist. I got a yummy
burnt end. Good smoke and good flavor. No sauce needed. A good product for
Ribs: Good. Tough of tender, tearing and dirty bone. Sticky sweet and nice rub.
Decent smoke. No sauce needed. Brown sugar hides a lot of sins No sauce needed.
Sausage: Good. Traditional spice fine ground pork sausage and mild after taste.
A little greasy. Average. Average. Average. Use the sauce.
Original Sauce: Fair. A bitter burnt ancho chili based disaster. Who thinks
this stuff is good? I wonder how many plates of decent BBQ they have ruined
over the years by pouring this medicine over it. They have a sweet version
which is same sauce with molasses. Two disasters to choose from. Skip it all
together or bring your own.
